Anon 2 - Oh goodness, thank you, gentle anon :D
cookiethecat - I would say beginning to mid-September! It’s pretty much done, printing just takes a bit of back and forth.
mosstreader - Hi hi! Hmm…I’m not an expert on anatomy myself, but there’s always the standard “take figure drawing classes, use reference” (senshistock is a GREAT resource). What I like to do personally is start out with a line for the spine and kinda draw stick figure-y shapes in the general pose like this. So, pretty much a gesture drawing, then make another layer or start building off of that for the more detailed parts. The great thing about working digitally is that if it doesn’t look right, you can easily cut and move stuff. Like I know the smaller figure’s head is too high up there in my sketch so I can just select it and drag it down. Also another tip that a lot of people use is to flip a canvas horizontally to check if anything looks too borked. You get used to seeing it look ‘correct’ as you draw it, so when you flip the image, it’s like seeing it in a new light. When doing figure drawing, I find it helps to uh…literally objectify, I guess, the model. If I stop seeing them as a person, it’s easier for me to see the form, how things fit together, how they balance and why. If you’ve never done life drawing before, that might also help you get over any nervousness you might have about drawing a naked person. :P
As a sidenote, thinking about the human body in terms of this pose right here (sorry, this is what google gave me for it) helped me a lot. The parts in that “N” shape she makes are generally the same length (lower leg, upper leg, torso), then you just need to remember that elbows hit mid-torso, and fingertips hit mid-thigh.
